Ratner Shelves God Of War Movie

Okay, everyone say it once, all in rhythm: "eh, you would've just mucked it up, anyway."

In October 2008, film director Brett Ratner ("Rush Hour, "X-Men 3") revealed that one of his new projects is a movie adaptation of the critically acclaimed God of War series. However, fans weren't that enthralled with the announcement, and although that may have nothing to do with this, Production Weekly reports that Ratner has shelved the idea. The simple quote is- "Over at Universal it looks like Brett Ratner has shelved 'God Of War,' and is moving forward on 'Trump Heist' with Eddie Murphy and Chris Tucker." Yeah, whatever. Keep pumping out the mediocrity, Hollywood; we'll just keep advancing and making superior entertainment products over here, if that's all right with you. That way, when your box office profit takes another dive and you fall even further behind our industry (that's what you get for continually insulting the intelligence of the movie-viewing public), you can just blame us for taking away all the film viewers. We don't mind. At the very least, you won't go and screw up one of our most beloved franchises.

We understand a "Metal Gear Solid" movie is also in the works, but with Hideo Kojima sitting in a major seat of influence during the production, we'd like to think it'll be excellent. A "God of War" movie? Nah, we'd rather you didn't try it.
